Less is More: Making a Good Post-Secondary Decision
by Discover Year
Description: If you are planning on pursuing post-secondary education, how many post-secondary schools are you considering? How many programs? What information are you weighing in your decision? 

Research in psychology has shown that trying to make a choice from among many options can cause people significant stress and anxiety, and often leads to “decision making paralysis”, where many options are considered, but no decision is made. Jay observed this phenomenon thousands of times through conversations with high school students over the past decade, and he wants to help students make good decisions. Join him in this session to better understand: 

  1. how many options are too many, and 
  2. how you can reduce the options you are considering from the outset, so you can make a better decision for yourself. 
Q&A Time: 14:00 EST

Seminar videos are available on-demand pre, during, and post-fair. A live Q&A will take place during the live event to allow attendees to ask any follow-up questions to the seminars. See below for scheduled times.
